How to Choose a Scraper in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Consider the Uses of Each Blade Width
  2. Select a Blade With the Most Practical Properties for Your Tasks
  3. Choose a Soft Handle Material Like TPR or Rubber for a Comfortable Grip

1. Consider Blade Width and Style: Smaller Tools Reach Into Corners While Angled Edges Help Get Under Paint

1. Consider Blade Width and Style: Smaller Tools Reach Into Corners While Angled Edges Help Get Under Paint

Begin by considering the blade size and whether it fits the scope of your project. Smaller scrapers with blade widths of 3 inches or less are perfect for jobs like scraping dried paint blobs along the edges of doors and windows. The compact size reaches into tight corners easily and depending on the task, they can produce less dust.


If you want to work through a larger area quickly and efficiently opt for a standard scraper with a blade of 4 inches or more. Most have angled edges to help get under paint and their robustness significantly reduces the amount of effort you need to put into scraping. Choose these for use in multiple other DIY tasks such as spreading materials, filling and smoothing holes and cracks, and drywall taping. 

2. Select the Blade With the Most Practical Properties for Your Tasks

Pick a Carbide Blade if You're After the Most Durable Option

Pick a Carbide Blade if You're After the Most Durable Option

Carbide blades offer better performance and a longer life expectancy than carbon steel blades, which makes them more economical in the long term. And because they're also much more resistant to heat, they're ideal for removing stubborn, stuck-on debris from hot surfaces.


These advantages come at a price, though. Carbide tools generally tend to be more expensive than comparable implements. However, scraping is hard work so it's worth investing in a blade that will make short work of the entire process.

Opt For Stainless Steel to Reduce Rust, or Go For Spring Steel if You Want a Flexible Blade

Opt For Stainless Steel to Reduce Rust, or Go For Spring Steel if You Want a Flexible Blade

Known for their strength, wear resistance and toughness, steel blades are a popular choice. They can come in a number of variations, including carbon steel, stainless steel and spring steel. One steel isn't better than the others; base your selection on the nature of the project and your expected outcome.


If you intend to use your scraper for cleaning on wet surfaces or with cleaning agents that are acidic or moist, it's best to opt for a stainless steel blade. This is because stainless steel is much less reactive to acids and moisture, so it will be slower in corroding than carbon steel.


Spring steel, on the other hand, may refer to either stainless steel spring or carbon steel spring. They have high yield strength, which allows them to return to their original shape despite significant bending and twisting. This elastic feature makes them perfect for someone after a tool that's more resilient and pliable.

Get a Plastic Blade for Delicate Surfaces Like Mirrors, Wood or Even Fish Tanks

There are times when using a metal blade isn't appropriate. At such times, a plastic blade will help you scrape away unwanted materials without scratching the surface you're working on. Although they're not as sharp as metal, they eliminate the hazard of using a metal blade.


They are a safer and more versatile option that can be used on a variety of surfaces for scraping, cleaning or peeling off debris like stickers and adhesive residue. These are a must-have for delicate surfaces like mirrors, cars, wood or even fish tanks.

3. For a Comfortable Grip, Choose a Soft, Ergonomic Handle Like TPR or Rubber

3. For a Comfortable Grip, Choose a Soft, Ergonomic Handle Like TPR or Rubber

For a more comfortable experience, select scrapers with rubber or TPR handles as they provide good traction. Rubber handles are slip-resistant and allow for a soft grip. TPR (thermoplastic rubber) possesses the attributes of both rubber and plastic, including good abrasion resistance. That means TPR handles will withstand the friction that comes with repetitive rubbing while you scrape, and they won't get worn away quickly.


The disadvantage of TPR is that it can be a little weighty. So if weight is of major concern to you, opt for scrapers with plastic handles as they tend to be more lightweight, but be mindful that they may also be slippery.


Alternatively, you may want to consider wooden handles. While less grippy than rubber and plastic, wood is not only aesthetically appealing but also durable and inexpensive. As a result, scrapers made with wooden handles are budget-friendly.


For scouring ice or snow off your car, you'll need a separate ice scraper
